Cut Suggestions:

Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip is something I experimented with, but in the end all I could ever really do was activate her +, which is pretty weak in this deck. But my meta is pretty hard on planeswalkers. Maybe yours is more lenient, idk.

Lord of Extinction is sorta just weak here. I mean it combos great with Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord , but how often are you going to christmas-dreamland into both of those two? And Nighthowler is kinda just a worse Lord of Extinction .

I have played Sheoldred, Whispering One before and, like all of the praetors, all she does is get you targeted to death- especially if you can recur her.

Smothering Abomination and Grim Haruspex WILL draw you to death in a deck like this (a deck where you have no real wincon other than Plaguecrafter away your opponents' boards and chip in).

Deadbridge Chant 's randomness makes it pretty bad. You're aiming to have like 10 or 15 cards in your grave by the time you play this, it makes that number 25. 1 in 25 is not very good. Like the card is a decent value engine, but it's not likely to get you what you're looking for.

You have a lot of cards that I looked at and though ... "but you can get a creature to do that." Krosan Grip , Green Sun's Zenith , Reanimate , Grave Pact ? All have creature alternatives.

Suggestions for Adds:

Acidic Slime : flexible removal

Diligent Farmhand : okay ramp (see also Dawntreader Elk )

Farhaven Elf : better ramp

Phyrexian Delver : nice recursion- Reanimate on a body

Thragtusk : a BIG pillow to lie back against- five life and two blockers!

Treasure Keeper : good value

Veteran Explorer : never hurts to have the table on your side

Vindictive Lich : hits each opponent where it hurts

Wall of Blossoms : big-butt creature and a draw

Wurmcoil Engine : just insane

Hell's Caretaker : good recursion

Attrition : repeatable removal

Perilous Forays : repeatable ramp

Priest of Forgotten Gods : repeatable Plaguecrafter

Quagmire Druid : repeatable enchantment removal

Sadistic Hypnotist : repeatable hand hate

Thoughtpicker Witch : f.ck somebody's draws

Viscera Seer : free, instant-speed sac outlet, provides some card advantage

Vraska, Golgari Queen : + is great, - is great, and ult is insane

Deathreap Ritual : lots of draw

Savra, Queen of the Golgari : Grave Pact , but with a nicer mana cost, and the potential for recursion if it dies

Shadows of the Past : so. many. scries.

Zulaport Cutthroat : pings opponents to death, gains life

Thanks Cloudius! Teysa Karlov is definitely a sweet card.

Thoughtpicker Witch is a cool card, can't believe I've never seen it before.

I was considering Hidden Stockpile when I was making this deck originally, but it didn't make the cut. It might find a home in here though.

+1 Awesome deck and cool formatting. Here's my attempt to help you maintain that #1 spot!

Teysa Karlov excites me the moment the card was spoilt for RNA as she is a perfect fit for my Athreos, God of Passage Aristocrat deck.

Thoughtpicker Witch and Hidden Stockpile are great sac outlets for me in this deck. Witch allows me to lock down a player's draw as long as I've sufficient creatures to sac/recur each turn. Stockpile synergises with Teysa and coughs out tokens after tokens. You may wish to consider them too.

I've yet to tweak my deck to fit in the RNA cards as I was busy brewing another deck recently. Would like to tap on your knowledge on which cards I can remove to put in Teysa Karlov . Any other feedback, comments or suggestions are welcomed too!

Generally your card selection here is at too high a mana cost, no 1 mana spells is a big deal, especially when, off the top of my head; Viscera Seer , Mortician Beetle , Deathgreeter , Quest for the Gravelord and Thoughtpicker Witch all exist. Modern is a fast format, spells which cost 4 or more mana need to have significant impact to be playable, spells that cost less need to be the most efficient version. For example, you might think that these three cards would be ordered in playability thus: Murder > Victim of Night > Fatal Push , the opposite is actually true Fatal Push is the best of the 3, it is one of the best removal spells in Modern... In a deck focused on sacrifice though Tragic Slip is also a good choice.

Cards like Grim Haruspex , Skirsdag High Priest and Bone Picker are ideal for this sort of deck as you net an additional benefit from the sacrifice. A card like Scavenger Drake can't be played until turn 4, Mortician Beetle is potentially there on turn 1. If you want a finisher in this sort of deck Demon of Death's Gate would be a classic option. Cards which can return themselves also have value Bloodsoaked Champion and Reassembling Skeleton would be examples.

Try to organise the deck so that you have more 1 drops, than 2, more 2 than 3 etc, keep in mind though that functionally Bone Picker should be a 1 drop in your deck, so there is a little wiggle room. I hope this helps, good luck brewing your deck.

No, they're not. Alesha's effect still sucks. Also, you're just flat-out wrong if you think using Fume Spitter every turn until there aren't any creatures on the board except your own isn't worthwhile. Same goes for Heap Doll , same goes for Harvester of Souls , same goes for Workhorse if you have something like Winding Canyons , same goes for literally 20 other creatures in the deck, like Noxious Toad (oracle text, it's each opponent).

Okay, lockdown isn't viable. Sure. That's why Alesha having to access to white for stax effects is so relevant, right? Mono-black has stax effects aplenty, and especially with Shirei--I can abuse Smokestack and Contamination to literally shut down everything.

It's entirely possible to keep anyone other than yourself from drawing anything but lands with Thoughtpicker Witch , and they'll be topdecking, at that.

You guys act like you know what you're talking about when you haven't even heard of most of these cards before, let alone played them/played against them.

Thanks Kjartan.

Grave Pact is perfect! How many copies?

I like Pitiless Plunderer! I like the Bitterblossom/Thoughtpicker Witch/Pitiless Plunderer "combo" and I would hate to lose it, but you're right about the low curve. Are there any other options?

Grim Haruspex is intresting, I like the running version idea, it's a deck type I love.
